Terrence Parker (known to many as "TP") born and raised in Detroit, has become legendary for his quite uncommon yet skillful turntablism style of playing House Music. TP has also become widely admired because he uses an actual telephone handset as headphones.
Terrence has performed as a DJ in 40 countries throughout the world and has released more than 100 recordings on his Intangible Records label and various labels including Sony, Defected, Nervous, Kingstreet, and Purple Music. Terrence has top 20 hits with his songs "Love's Got Me High", "The Question" and albums like “Life On The Back 9” and "Detroit After Dark". Terrence is also making his mark as a techno producer with his “Alarm The Sound” track topping the 2016 Traxsource Top 200 Techno Singles chart at Number # 3.
Terrence has two album projects coming in 2017. The album “GOD Loves Detroit” is scheduled to be released in the Spring of 2017 on Planet E Communications (Detroit). This new album features TP collaborations with Coco Street, and Merachka (who co-produced, co-wrote, and sings on the first single entitled “Don’t Waste Another Minute” which also features a remix by London’s As I Am) released in February 2016. The album “Motor City Life” is also scheduled to be released later in 2017 on Goldmin Records (Paris) which features a collection of unreleased versions of house and hip hop (downtempo) tracks.
Terrence’s 2014 album entitled, “Life On The Back 9” released in January 2014 on Carl Craig’s Planet E label in Detroit was rereleased as an expanded remix album in November 2014 on Defected Records in London. This album which in its debut reached number # 1 on the Traxsource Top 100 Albums Sales Chart, tells the story of how he was encouraged by his father to continue on forward by the struggles and challenges of life. The album features the writing contributions and vocal performances by Merachka, Coco Street, Kelly Gunn, Reno Ka, and features remixes by Carl Craig, Underground Resistance/Timeline, Louie Vega, Josh Milan, Monty Luke, Marc Romboy, Merachka, House Of Praise and Terrence Parker.
Terrence does not like to be put in a box. Instead he prefers to be viewed as one who enjoys various styles of music which can often be heard in his music productions and DJ set. He has established himself as one of electronic music’s legendary Producer/DJs and continues to be in high demand as a touring DJ, Producer, and Remixer. Keep your eyes and ears open for more to come from Detroit’s own Terrence Parker.
Merachka is a producer, remixer, writer, singer, and DJ who firmly represents the city of Detroit. As a masked crusader (a Detroit tradition started by Underground Resistance and Scan 7), Merachka’s music productions, song writing, vocal performances and remixes have captivated dance floors worldwide on labels like Defected, Planet E, Nervous, Soul Heaven, Bargrooves, and Intangible.

In November 2014, London based Defected Records released “Open Up Your Spirit” featuring Merachka as the song’s lyrical writer, vocalist, and remixer for this lead single from Terrence Parker’s “Life On The Back 9” expanded version. This critically acclaimed single helped drive the album to the number 1 spot on the Traxsource Top 100 Album Sales Chart within 1 week of its release. “Open Up Your Spirit” is one of the featured tracks on the “Life On The Back 9” original album release by Carl Craig’s Planet E label in Detroit, and appears on several UK Top 20 Dance Chart compilations for 2014 and 2015 including Defected In The House Amsterdam 2014, Soul Heaven Miami 2015, and Defected Most Rated 2015.
